3 day Radical Collaboration® training

The 3 day Radical Collaboration training is highly interactive and focused on skills that are essential to building and maintaining climates of trust and collaboration within teams and organisations. The skills are immediately useful and can be quickly implemented.


Because the training is interactive and the tools are very practical, the program is ideal for a wide range of settings and educational levels.

A variety of teaching methods are used to enhance your learning experience and to help you put it easily into practice after the training: case studies, simulations, lectures, visualisations, self-assessment instruments, group debriefs, small group discussions, feedback instruments, work on real-life conflicts.

Five essential skills


The workshop focuses on providing you with hands-on experiences to develop five essential skills for overcoming defensiveness and building successful relationships:

  • Collaborative intention: stay non-defensive and commit to mutual success in  relationships.

  • Openness: be open yourself and create a climate of openness  where people feel safe enough to raise difficult issues.

  • Self-accountability: Take responsibility for the choices you make and for the intended and unintended consequences of those choices.

  • Awareness of Self and Others: Commit to know yourself and others well enough to explore and resolve difficult interpersonal issues.

  • Problem solving and negotiating: Skilfully negotiate your way through inevitable conflicts in a way that supports rather than undermines the relationship.

Expected outcomes
  • Develop key leadership skills that are crucial for effective collaboration and trust building.

  • Know how to create psychological safety so people feel safe to raise difficult issues.

  • Overcome defensiveness and support others to reduce their defensiveness.

  • Acquire skills in negotiating, problem-solving, and conflict resolution.

  • Increase insights into personal preferences and styles, when collaborating and managing conflict.

  • Have an opportunity to deal with a real and current collaboration challenge that you are having.
